Authors who deserve more Recognition

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme to share your top ten bookish things. It is especially funny for people who like to make lists.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Authors That Deserve More Recognition (reduced to three on whom I set my heart).

1. Siri Hustvedt - She is an American author with Norwegian roots. I only read the novel What I Loved yet, which amazingly portrayed the complexitiy of relationships. What I Loved is a deeply moving story about art, love, loss, and betrayal. I'm looking forward to reading her new book The Summer Without Men.

2. Anna Gavalda - She is a French auhtor and wrote the beautiful story Hunting and Gathering or maybe better known as Ensemble, c'est tout. My review of this book is here.

3. Leonie Swann - She is a German author and wrote an amiable sheep detective story. When the flock finds out that their shpeard was killed they decide to find the murderer. I recommend this book over and over. Three Bags Full is the title of that dear book and I can't wait to read her latest book Garou.


  1. I've heard of Anna Gavalda but not the others. Can't wait to check them out though! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I've never heard of these authors. I will look into them soon. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I've picked up Three Bags Full a few times, but never bought it. Thanks for the recommendation.
